Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On August 6, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the aggregate grant date fair value of equity awards (the “Award Value”) for the following Named Executive Officers of the Company (as set forth in the Company’s most recent proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2014).


Named Executive Officer

   Award Value  

Rory P. Read, President and Chief Executive Officer

   $ 6,500,000   

Devinder Kumar, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

   $ 2,000,000   

John Byrne, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group

   $ 2,500,000   

Mark D. Papermaster, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer

   $ 2,500,000   

Lisa Su, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer

   $ 4,000,000   

On the grant date, each of the above Named Executive Officer’s Award Value will be converted into a mix of time-based stock options (with a grant date fair value equal to 25% of the Award Value), time-based restricted stock units (with a grant date fair value equal to 25% of the Award Value) and performance-based restricted stock units (with a grant date fair value equal to 50% of the Award Value) using a $4.10 share price for the time-based stock options, time-based restricted stock units and performance-based restricted stock units and a 38.86% binominal factor for the time-based stock options. These awards will be granted on August 12, 2014 under the Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended and restated.

Time-Based Stock Options. The time-based stock options will have an exercise price equal to 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the grant date and will vest 33 13% on August 12, 2015 and 8 13% per quarter over the next eight following quarters.

Time-Based RSUs. The time-based restricted stock units will vest 33 13% on each of August 9, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Performance-Based RSUs. The initial number of performance-based restricted stock units that may be earned will be based upon the Company achieving a certain pre-established target level of adjusted non-GAAP operating income plus interest expense over a two-year performance period commencing on January 1, 2014 and ending on December 31, 2015 (the “Performance Period”). Once the initial award amount is determined, the performance-based restricted stock units will then be subject to adjustment based upon a second metric, the Company’s total shareholder return (“TSR”) relative to the TSR of the S&P 500 IT Sector over the Performance Period. If the Company’s TSR for the Performance Period is at or above the 75th percentile, then the Named Executive Officer will earn 125% of the initial number of shares. If the Company’s TSR for the Performance Period is above the 25th percentile and below the 75th percentile, a proportionate adjustment between 75% and 125% is applied to the initial number of shares based on relative performance between the 25th and 75th percentile.

The earned performance-based restricted stock units vest 50% upon completion of the Performance Period and 50% on the one-year anniversary of the completion of the Performance Period.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
